Re: winching up the mast,

hello there, I always use my mast halyard winches. On smaller vessels that have a one-to-one ratio it would be very difficult to lift the occupied boatswain's chair. what I have done in that case is spoool out the halyard through a snatch block then back up to the top of the mast using the other halyard. Making a two to one ratio on your lift.
be very careful of what you are doing and use a safety harness......CaptG
